Library launches youth summer reading program


The public library Thursday is officially kicking off its summer reading programs for children and teens. Through the programs, which run through Aug. 22, participants record and earn prizes for how much they read. They also are invited to attend special events. The theme of this year’s children’s program is Dream Big. The kickoff event, scheduled for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, will feature painting and games, and at 11 a.m., a performance by the Toe Jam Puppet Band. The teen program is themed Own the Night. The launch, set for 3:15 to 5 p.m. Thursday, will include games and snacks. The library also has an adult summer reading program featuring prizes for reading and special events. To sign up for the programs, stop by the library or go to The library recently announced it has added two new passes that provide patrons with free or discounted admission to area museums and other attractions. The passes are for the Lowell Spinners minor league baseball team and the Harvard Museum of Natural History. The passes are provided by the Friends of the Burlington Public Library.
